Redbox Entertainment has unveiled its brand new and brutal thriller Black Site. The film, from director Sophia Banks, stars Michelle Monaghan as CIA operative Abby Trent who must do battle with a ruthless killer named appropriately enough Hatchet (Jason Clarke) when he is delivered to the off the books site that Abby runs. Things run amok, of course, as Hatchet escapes and makes the black ops detention site his very own personal hunting grounds. Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad) also stars in the thriller that is now available on DVD and On Demand from Redbox Entertainment. Check out and listen to my exclusive review of the film below!
Black Site’s additional cast also includes Pallavi Sharda (The One), Phoenix Raei (Clickbait), Fayssal Bazzi (Stateless), Logan Huffman (Monster Party), Todd Lasance (Without Remorse), Lincoln Lewis (The Possessed), Pacharo Mzembe (La Brea), Lucy Barrett (Charmed), Simon Elrahi (Akoni), Joey Vieira (Romance on the Menu), and Uli Latukefu (Young Rock).
Black Site blends genres with action mixed in with a psychological thriller vibe and peppered with a little horror-slasher movie tone. The cast is all game here and Clarke looks like he’s having fun playing a character with no redeeming value whatsoever and throw in some hand-to-hand action to go along with the bloodletting, and you’ve got a candidate for Saturday night viewing. There’s plenty of victims for Hatchet to carve up as he is cunning and downright unstoppable so don’t expect this one to let up until the credits roll.
